The best beaches in northeastern Spain – in the eyes of our columnists:

Patacho Beach, Alagoas

Flávio Antunes

“Perfect, exclusive, beautiful, warm water. Perfect for couples trips, boutique inns, great food at the inns. It's a private paradise, even in high season the beach is still empty.”, says the founder of Blog Mochilando, Flávio Antunes. Patacho beach is a 2h30 drive from Maceió.


A good idea is to stop at the beaches on the way, especially in Pousada Casa Caiada (which is 25 minutes from Maceió). The inn is perfect for couples, does not accept children. The highlight is the pool, perfect for relaxing in the late afternoon.

Sao Miguel dos Milagres, Alagoas

Flávio Antunes

With the same striking features of Praia do Patachó, São Miguel dos Milagres has become a stronghold of “hype” at the moment, especially in the new year. The natural pools there are even more beautiful, and avoid the hustle and bustle of the famous and popular Maragogi.

Japaratinga, Alagoas

Patricia Maria

“Japaratinga, in Alagoas won me over! One day I went for a walk on the beach for more than 2 hours and found only 3 fishermen. It was as if I had a deserted beach all to myself with an incredible vibe!”, comments columnist Patricia Schussel. Japaratinga is a 2-hour drive from Maceio.

Caraiva and Praia do Espelho, Bahia

Virginia Falanges

Close to trendy Trancoso, Caraíva is still a secluded paradise in Bahia. There, the entry of cars is prohibited and electricity has reached less than a decade. You have to cross a river on a small raft and then enjoy the small town with sandy streets, idyllic beaches and a rustic atmosphere.



Between Trancoso and Caraiva, it is worth visiting Praia do Espelho, a quiet, deserted beach with white sand. If you're going to eat something at a restaurant by the beach, you need to get into the mood of Bahia, relax and wait for a few hours for snacks.

Sancho Bay, Fernando de Noronha

Virginia Falanges

There is no way to talk about the best beaches in the Northeast without mentioning the beach elected among the 10 most beautiful in the world: Baía do Sancho, in Fernando de Noronha. Noronha is a trip worth being on the list of all Brazilians.

You have to untie yourself from your urban ties, forget about your cell phones and make the most of this paradise: both above and underwater. Praia do Sancho is the essential stop on the archipelago.
